    If I was going to splurge, it would be on pendant lights. They are badly needed over my island!

    I live on a tight budget and one of my favorite “splurges” is buying fresh grated Parmesan cheese for on my spagetti rather then the canned version.

    Everyone’s idea of a splurge is different – A few years I got new kitchen windows which bring beautiful light into the kitchen, and lets me look out the window at my herb garden and the Carolina cardinals in the bird bath

    It might not be considered a “splurge”, but having what I need at hand is always a luxury: the correct tool for the job, the right size and type of pot, pan, or bowl, enough spoons and knives. Not having to “make do” is definitely a splurge!

    Chocolate truffles hidden deep in the pantry where no one knows they are there but me. Why? Because good quality chocolate should be savored and this only happens when no children are around.

    My new french door stainless steel fridge. Why, because I love the look and it does not show handprints.

    My biggest kitchen splurge was new cabinets! OUCH to my pocket book! If I could splurge again….double ovens would be my kitchen jewelry.

    A stunning, hard-forged stainless steel olive oil can is my favorite splurge. Though not expensive, this oil disperser is a luxury worth every penny.

    Years of use have proven that it is durable, handy for cooking and that it protects fine oil from deteriorating. Over time it has maintained its simple beauty and never fails to make us reminisce about a long ago summer in Tuscany.

    fresh herbs that i grow in my window it’s not a costly splurge but it’s something people take for granted that it’s just easier to purchase jar spices but there is a difference.

    My favorite kitchen splurge are my Kuhn-Rikon pressure cookers. Meals are made so quickly, beans do not need to be soaked overnight, there’s no fear of explosions like the old-fashioned pressure cookers, and best of all it is done quickly without adding very unwelcomed heat in the kitchen during our Phoenix-area scorching summers.

    My biggest kitchen splurge is my stove. I love a good gas stove to cook on. I cook almost every night and love it.

    The delicious wines we buy, keeping them on the buffet until we drink them (which doesn’t last long!)

    My two wushtof chefs knives! It is amazing the difference it makes to have a nice, well made chefs knife. Makes prep so much faster and easier. They are several years old now, but still the best knives in my kitchen 🙂

    My favorite kitchen splurge was a GE Monogram range. I love preparing meals for beautiful wife and friends. It is hard to go wrong with such a great range. My wife really enjoys making candies using the range, she is amazed at melting chocolate without a double boiler and not having her arms burned by the steam. Cooking is more fun with great appliances. We plan on using the light over our french provincial buffet that we are redoing with a faux painted marble top if we win it.

    My favorite kitchen splurge would be to have a beautiful light fixture to shine down upon our wine country wooden table. My sweet husband thought bringing his light fixture from his old house would be the best economical choice, but it was never my choice when got married in 2011. After making the cross country move from the South to Sonoma County, CA–I need some SOUTHERN light to shine down on my kitchen table!

    My favorite Kitchen splurge was the microwave we got for Christmas last year. It’s definitely the nicest thing in our kitchen.

    My Splurge would be to win any of the 28 day contest. We are redoing a 1932 house, need any thing. I guess my splurge would be a Fridge all the works.

    My favorite kitchen splurge was the juicer my husband bought me before we married. I would also splurge on kitchen cabinets. You can never have enough storage space in a kitchen.

    i like to splurge on good coffee, i love it, it smells good and tastes good too!

    My favorite kitchen splurge was my Kitchenaid Mixer. I love to bake year round and make several types of candy during the Christmas holidays. My old mixer could not handle divinity or the very dense filling for pecan logs. The Kitchenaid mixer has pleanty of power and is a joy to use!

    My most favorite kitchen splurge is the Ninja Master Prep Pro System Food Processor. As a budding chef still learning the ropes of the kitchen from my parents, my of the things I wish I could excel more at is my knife skills. I just can’t dice or mince with expert speed like my dad (a chef) can. Practice more, I know, but ever since I got the Ninja Master Prep Pro System I didn’t have to stress about how poor my knife skills were. Just throw the food items in and have the machine do it for me in seconds. I love to use it and pretend I was the one that did the cutting work. Besides that, I also love that I could use the Ninja Master Prep Pro System to crush up ice and make frozen desserts with it. Awesome multifunctional machine well worth the splurge.

    My favorite splurge was when I bought a new cookware set and a new knife set, quality pieces that would last a lifetime.

    I don’t have a favorite kitchen splurge but I sure would like to win this.

    Splurging on gourmet coffees and teas is my current obsession. There’s such an abundance of flavors and varieties, I might not satisfy this passion for years!

    Something that every kitchen should have: a beautiful marble rolling pin. They’re heavy enough to roll pastries and other doughs flat as well as the ability to stay colder, longer, which helps to keep the shortening and butter in pastry doughs cold. Also, they have better smoothness than wooden, synthetic, and ceramic ones.

    I buy only fresh herbs — not the dried stuff. It makes every dish taste better. I’ve started growing some of the easier plants to cut costs a little though!

    My splurge is still a work-in-progress! I am slowing redoing the kitchen in my childhood home and trying to bring a 50’s relic into the 21st century!! My next purchase will be a freezer-on-the-bottom refrigerator. The ‘ol back ain’t what it used to be and I look forward to retrieving Diet Mountain Dew and food without having to constantly lean over!!! Thanks for the month-long giveaways, Southern Living!!!!!

    I, too, like to splurge on fresh flowers. They make everything look so inviting.

    February 27, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Fresh flowers! Nobody notices the cabinetry, old appliances or countertops when spring is in the kitchen.

    My favorite kitchen splurge would be a convection oven.

    I guess I can consider this a kitchen splurge, because I do use it in my kitchen, and the results from this splurge I use all the time in recipes. We have many, many Pecan trees around our home and the farm. In the fall time when the Pecans are falling I can sit under the trees all day long and pick up pecans. I will gather so many large buckets full of pecans, but I hate shelling them. Now my husband knows I am a very practical woman. I don’t want jewelry or fancy perfumes for gifts, I like getting things I can do with, like mixers and steam mops and Jersey cows (sounds weird, I know). So this past Christmas I asked him to get me an electric pecan cracker. This pecan cracker can crack and somewhat shell as many as 1500 pecans an hour! I love it!!! So now I have a freezer full of shelled pecans when usually at this time of year I still have buckets and buckets full. I have been able to give so many packages of shelled pecans to friends, and we all know how expensive pecans are in the stores. I tell my husband not to think about all the money he spent getting this for me, think about all the money he is saving. Many times I would never get around to shelling all my pecans and would not freeze them unshelled, so I would end up buying some when I needed them for a recipe. Now I will never ever have to buy pecans again.

    I haven’t done it yet, but I would love an apron sink. The look just makes me all warm and cozy. 🙂
